In this episode, Erika covers the kidnapping and murder of Lizabeth Wilson. In the summer of 1974, 11 year old John Wilson was at the local pool with his sister, 13 year old Lizabeth Wilson in Prairie Village, Kansas. John races to beat his sister home, but she never arrives. By 10 pm their parents call 9-1-1 to report Lizabeth missing. Police are suspicious of the evening janitor, John Henry Horton, who was working at the High School next to the pool at the time of Lizabeth's disappearance
